Angelica Kauffman Paintings

Angelica Kauffman (1741–1807) was a Swiss Neoclassical painter. She showed talent for painting at an early age which her father, a muralist, greatly encouraged. Kauffman studied art in Italy and eventually moved to London where she became celebrated as a highly skilled portrait artist. She was one of only two women who had the honor of signing the founding document of the Royal Academy. During Kauffman’s lifetime, women were usually unable to become professional painters of the same respect as their male counterparts; Kauffman’s success as a woman was a rare and wonderful occurrence. When she passed away in 1807, her friend, the sculptor Antonio Canova, organized a beautiful funeral for her which was modeled after Raphael’s own Renaissance burial.
